"Most Practical and Actionable Community"

Building a business is hard.
Doing it alone is harder...

πŸ˜•

Your problems are unique

Your family doesn't understand what you're going through.
Your friends are oblivious to entrepreneurship.
And reading more content doesn't resolve your challenges.
You need someone who "gets" you

😯

Nobody gives you honest feedback

People close to you don't want to hurt you.
Finding someone to give you feedback is a pain in the butt.
And Twitter Influencers keep regurgitating the same generic advice every day 🀷
There's nobody to guide you

πŸ˜‘

Its easy to get stuck in a rut

How do you prioritize tasks?
Which aspect of your business do you focus on the most?
What are next 3 steps you should be taking?
You struggle to gain clarity

Your Mastermind is here to help...

πŸ€— Your group members understand your challenges. They've been there, done that and want to help you.
πŸ€” They give you honest feedback so you can be true to your business.
πŸ“ˆ And keep you accountable to your goals so you're always moving forward.

Prasanna

Founder, Monitz

"I would highly recommend Indie Mastermind, if you are serious about building products. I like these especially -- Sessions on Marketing ideas & validations
- Fellow creator 's problem & how they approach in the hot seat sessions
- Action focused mini sprints
On top of all these, Ayush is a friendly & straightforward person, whom we can rely upon for Accountability & Validations"⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Bhanu

Founder, Feather.so

"Indie Masterminds is 100% worth the price.I was skeptical going in, because I don't know the people that are in the mastermind. So I didn't think I would get anything out of it. But because Ayush created this,I wanted to give it a shot and
it is 100% worth it.""

Trusted by seasoned entrepreneurs

Nathan Powell

Founder, FEATURE FLUX

"If you want to move your business forward, it’s important to be around others doing the same. But as solo founders, we can only rely on our own skill set and experience. The great thing about a mastermind is the collective background of your fellow members, from marketing to development to UX and much more. If you want to move your business forward, try Ayush’s mastermind service. It might be the best business decision you make."⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Mohit Pawar

Author and Entrepreneur

"Last month, I had a chance to work with Ayush through his IndieMasterminds.Loved the experience and value Ayush brought to the table. His willingness to help stood out. Can’t recommend it enough to fellow Indiepreneurs+Creators."⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Fast-tracks your journey"

Abhijeet

SaaS Founder

"Indie mastermind program **fast-tracks your journey to achieving your goals. In a few weeks after joining, I finished my MVP and had two sales calls with potential
customers and | also had a lot of 'aha' moments **while talking to Ayush and fellow indie hackers. It's amazing how accountable you are to yourself with the help of your fellow community members, which is one of the reasons why I've subscribed again to be part of the community."
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Highly Recommend It"

Sahil Khosla

Founder, NoCode Pro

"Just wrapped up Ayush's Indie Masterminds cohort.
It is exactly what I needed to flush out my idea(s) and have a few folks hold me accountable along the way.
Ayush is super organized and provides a ton of freebies when you sign up!
Highly recommend it!
One of the best investments you can make"
⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

"Always keep things on track"

Bruce Park

Author and Entrepreneur

"I've done masterminds before and have gotten varying degrees of the value out of them. The thing that's different about Ayush's mastermind is that he helps facilitate them which helps ensure there's a strong driver to keep things on track (I've been in masterminds that seem to flail about after a while). The other thing I like as an organized person is that there's a reasonable agenda that allows for impromptu discussion as well as a specific end date for a mastermind. So you don't have to worry about being stuck for weeks (or months) in a group that you no longer want to be a part of trying to figure out how to excuse yourself. It's structured so you can jump in when you need a mastermind for your next project. Overall, I really enjoyed meeting the various community members and seeing what they were working on.** I can't wait to give it another whirl when I'm ready to launch.**"⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

We have had members from all across the world and various time zones.

Who will be the other members in my mastermind group?

Your mastermind group members will be solopreneurs like you - just 1 step ahead or 1 step behind you.

Why is this paid? I can just join a free community.

When you're not paying for something, you are the product being sold.Most free communities are promotion zones where people are only looking to build an audience and grow their business at the cost of YOUR attention.A paid mastermind has a single purpose - Growing your business.There are 3 more benefits to joining a paid mastermind:1. It filters out people who are not serious about their business 🀷
2. It keeps you accountable (you learn more from something when you have paid for it, yes it's human psychology 🧠)
3. It can cover a facilitator's costs (so the members don't hassle over the logistics every week)πŸ˜€

Okay I get it, this is great, but founder masterminds cost thousands of dollars, why does this cost so less, what's the catch?

No catch. You are early, prices go up every month πŸ˜ƒ

What business model do I need to have to benefit from the group?

Any business model can work, but it's good if you fall into these 3 categories -1. Software business (B2B SaaS, B2C consumer products, etc.)
2. Content business (Newsletters, Podcasts, E-books, Courses, etc.)
3. Service business (Freelancing, Agency, Consulting, etc.)
If you're not sure of your business model yet, feel free to join, you can use the group to figure out your business model, your offering, and your marketing strategy.

I am an introvert. Will this work for me?

A private mastermind is a safe space with fellow like-minded entrepreneurs. You will never feel out of place or uncomfortable. But you do have to commit to 1 hour a week to benefit from the group.

At what stage of my journey can I join?

At any stage:
- Full-time job but starting a side hustle.
- Pre-idea stage, market research, validating demand.
- Building distribution (A social media audience, newsletter, waitlist, etc.)
- Already have an idea, building the product, taking it to market. No revenue yet.

How is the program different from the community?

The 8 week program is a high touch, high commitment experience where you get personalized advice and feedback on your projects.If you enroll for the program, you can get lifetime access to the community for FREE.The private community is a low touch, low commitment experience where you can benefit from the Slack group, community events, challenges and intros.You can join the community for a period of 3 months or 1 year.You can upgrade to the program and get lifetime access to the community whenever you're ready.
